AG is getting ready to start her second year of the AWANA Sparks program at our church! She loves AWANA, and it is a great way to help our kids memorize God’s Word!
Her “section” for today was all review from last year, so I turned to golden ideas I had found on Pinterest and made them work for verse memory.
First, I took one of our 50 post-it note pads (seriously, how did we end up with this many post-its?) and trimmed a small stack of post-its so only the sticky strips at the top remained. I wrote out her verses on the sticky strips, trimmed them down so each word was on its own “sticker,” and stuck them on BW’s mega blocks.
Voila! Now, we had a verse memory review stacking game!
Next, she needed to review the books of the New Testament.
Inspired by yet another Pinterest pin, I wrote the name of each book on a clothespin, mixed them up, and had her pin them in order on a spare cutting mat from the kitchen.
Kids can learn Scripture amazingly well – and the more hands on we can make it, the better it can “stick!”
Happy stacking, sorting, and clipping!
